The only dive resort on Bonaire with a true beach in addition to reefs in the front yard for easy shore diving, Plaza Resort Bonaire, an all-inclusive, packs more value into your next dive getaway.

PADI Five Star Dive Center Toucan Diving is located on site, steps from the rooms, and is known for exceptional customer service. Three Island Hopper dive boats, recently upgraded, in addition to an incredibly stable dive catamaran, offer two-tank morning or afternoon dives, as well as a one-tank afternoon boat trip to nearby Klein Bonaire island or sites inaccessible to shore divers. With so many dive boats, Toucan is known for catering to groups. To further serve guests, the Silver Surfer boat now offers a special hoist seat to help adaptive divers in and out of the water easily.

The Toucan fleet also includes smaller vessels that offer snorkel tours and snorkel lessons for as few as two guests. A speedboat, just added to the fleet, adds kneeboarding and tubing to the watersports menu. Kayaks and stand-up paddleboards are also on offer, and lessons can be arranged. Fishing charters will also be available in 2024.

Plaza Resort, rated highly in several Readers Choice survey categories, is in the finishing stages of a massive, hotel-wide rebuild to offer a brand-new casino, spa and reception area, as well as two- and three-bedroom villas with full kitchens, giving guests the option to prepare their own meals separate of the all-inclusive plan. Of course, joining the all-inclusive plan is always an option— because, after all, guests come here to take full advantage of unlimited diving and relaxation.

With the all-inclusive package, all meals—buffet style plus live cooking, such as grilled ribs and more—are included, as are house wines, house beers and soft drinks. With big buffets, a fresh salad bar, massive spreads of desserts nightly and a top-notch beachside eatery for lunch, Plaza Resort was named one of the top picks for Quality of Restaurant in the Caribbean and Atlantic.

Plaza is also home to a huge, just- renovated swimming pool with ample day beds, shade and lounge chairs. Guests will also find the pool- and beachside Palm Beach Bar restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, blended drinks, espresso drinks, ice-cold beer and more—until midnight.

The on-site spa offers a wide menu of services, including Swedish massage, hot stone massage, facials, peels, body buffs, lymph drainage, reflexology and more.

Beyond the diving, watersports and spa, Plaza also offers yoga, live music and other entertainment several nights a week.

Whether you’re traveling with your partner, family, friends, dive group or solo, there’s plenty at Plaza to create an ideal dive vacation—as action-packed or as relaxing as suits your style.
